NBA All-Star Al Horford Visits Campbell Elementary in Atlanta
Al Horford of the Atlanta Hawks visited Campbell Elementary in Atlanta, GA on March 2, 2015 through a partnership with President Clinton’s Alliance for a Healthier Generation. This was Horford’s fifth school visit in Atlanta to encourage students to become healthier in their daily lives. Horford took a tour of the school, stretched with a first grade class and spoke to several hundred students about the importance of maintaining healthy habits.
Since joining the Alliance’s Healthy Schools Program, Campbell Elementary has been providing more opportunities for students to participate in physical activity including classroom “Brain Breaks”. Students are also no longer allowed to purchase snacks and sugar-based drinks from the school vending machines during the day. To date, Campbell Elementary has received the Georgia Gold Shape Award three years in a row, and two Bronze Awards and the Silver Award through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
